Summer Leadership Seminars

2020 Summer Events


National Capital Area Council’s NYLT Staff delivered a series of short seminars for Scouts who wanted to continue developing their leadership skills despite the cancellation of Summer 2020 NYLT courses. While these seminars are not substitutes for NYLT courses, they covered topics youth leadership have been struggling with while conducting their Scout programs online, providing strategies and tools to help them execute their roles and strengthen their Units.

For a limited time we are making all Session Notes available for download.

Leadership Training is one of the four Aims of Scouting. Through these seminars Scouts will have an opportunity to continue their leadership development despite the cancellation of NYLT this summer. Each seminar will be fast-paced and last about 50 minutes. Content is delivered by NYLT staff. It is recommended, but not required, that participants be in a position of Unit leadership and have attended ILS(T/C/S) or NYLT.


Q: Is this an “Online NYLT course?”

A: No. NYLT is a 6-day practical learning experience. We are offering this webinar to help Scouts who have attended NYLT (or are thinking about attending NYLT) focus on a few specific leadership topics in a fast-paced online format.

Q: Is there a certificate of completion I can share with my Unit Leader?

A: All Scouts will have an opportunity to receive (via email) a certificate of attendance.

Q: Will these webinars be recorded?

A: Not currently.

Q: When is the next opportunity to take NYLT in NCAC?

A: We are planning on holding courses in 2021, starting with a Winter course running across two 3-day weekends (MLK and Presidents’ Day). Registration typically opens in October but fills quickly. We anticipate running courses in the summer of 2021 as well.
